Hurricane Irma ripped through the St. Martin airport. It’s devastating to see the images that the wind inflicted.
We do a lot of engineering work on airport walkways. One of our 100 foot long walkways we worked on over ten years ago survived a direct hit as you can see in the images above. Note how the the rotating cab was ripped off the bridge.
Prayers and thoughts go out to the residents and travelers of this destination. So many forces of nature out there and engineering plays a role. Who knew how intense it could get!
